New Street Meter Technology Upgrade in Downtown Anchorage

December 02, 2016

New technology upgrade will affect future use of the ParkCard

EasyPark will begin upgrading their on street parking meters during the week of December 26. This required technology upgrade will affect the future use of the Parkcard.

“EasyPark is looking for an alternative pre-paid debit card for customers who are unable to use bank issued credit and debit cards for parking meter payments,” says Brian Borguno, Parking Director for EasyPark.”

During this transition, the Parkcard payment option will be accepted until December 31, 2016 at various meters. Meters that cannot accept the Parkcard payment option will be marked with an orange/white sticker that reads “Park Card Not Accepted.”

If you are not able to use your Parkcard funds by the deadline date, please bring in your Parkcard to the EasyPark office located at 440 B Street Monday-Friday 8am-5pm and we will do a parking exchange and/or refund your money.

As a reminder, PayByPhone is another option to pay for street meter parking. Users simply need to set up a free account via www.paybyphone.com, calling 1-866-243-Park (7275), or load the free application on their mobile phone.
